Man-made global warming is dead (surprise, surprise).

Indeed now we shall find out what cold is; no matter how much carbon dioxide in atmosphere increases. And carbon dioxide will increase, if eco-history is any indication. But who cares about eco-history? It’s harder to make a profit from eco-history. Our government is not interested in eco-history. Carbon dioxide is a much richer fraud. Now, as punishment, we enter the Al Gore Minimum; God help us; and God help our children.

Nothing has been done to improve cold-weather farming! Nothing.

18 Deep Maunder-like Minima In Last 7500 Years

It just cannot happen again

The supply of Maunder Minima has been used up; there aren’t any more MMs left in the supply cabinet.

Just because Maunder Minima (Little Ice Ages) have been happening with regularity every 350 years or so – and the last Maunder Minima was about 350 years ago – does not mean there are any more Maunder Minima possible on Earth. Quite the contrary.

Top scientists just don’t need to worry about Maunder Minima. Where’s the cash in it?

Whatever mechanism it was that caused Maunder Minima every 350 years for the past 7500 years; well, that mechanism is very weak compared to the strong greenhouse effect and recent intense global warming of 0.03 degrees centigrade since the 1850s which could only have been caused by the human industrial revolution and resulting anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions which started precisely in 1850.

Never mind that 1850 was the end of a prolonged Little Ice Age.

It – that mechanism which causes MMs – just has to be weak. OK? Al Gore and his top scientists told me, from their highly accurate computer models.

Instead, sea level will rise 220 feet in the next 50 years; that has happened zero times in the last 7500 years, thus there are a lot of Al Gore Cataclysms stored up in the supply cabinet and ready for action. Probably they all will strike in the next 50 years, unless we pay Al Gore $500 Trillion Dollars.

Besides all this, the next Maunder Minimum when it happens on schedule in the next few years as foreshadowed explicitly by the present profound solar somnolence, will be called the Al Gore Minimum, anyway.

All systems are a strong “go” for the next little ice age; the Al Gore Minimum. At this point, it looks more like a full-blown Maunder event than the less devastating Dalton Minimum

Global, very prolonged, temperature drop

27 Oct 09 – Observations of the Sun show that what lies ahead “is not catastrophic warming, but a global, and very prolonged, temperature drop,” says Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory.

In each of 18 deep minima of solar activity of the Maunder Minimum type for the last 7500 years, there have been periods of deep temperature decline, while in the periods of high sunspot maxima, there have been periods of global warming.

“Such changes in the climate of the Earth could be caused only by lasting and significant changes in the Sun,” says Dr. Abdussamatov, “because there was absolutely no industrial effect on nature in those times.”

The most significant solar event in the 20th century was the extraordinarily high level and the prolonged increase in the intensity of the energy radiated by the Sun.

“A similar rise in solar radiation has not been observed in at least 700 years. However, its consequence – the global warming of climate that followed – was not an anomalous event in the life of the Earth.

“Climate on the Earth has periodically changed, and our planet has repeatedly survived global warming, comparable to that of the current period, after each of which episodes the temperature has dropped deeply. Neither temperature drop nor warming lasts longer than the 200-year fluctuations of size and luminosity of the Sun.

“The intense solar energy flow radiated since the beginning of the 1990’s is slowly decreasing and, in spite of conventional opinion, there is now an unavoidable advance toward a global temperature decrease, a deep temperature drop comparable to the Maunder minimum,” says Dr. Abdussamatov.

Read that again. “A deep temperature drop comparable to the
Maunder minimum.” That was the coldest part of The Little Ice Age!

“Consequently, we should expect not the catastrophic melting of ice, but, on the contrary, the gradual growth of ice caps at the poles. It has already begun: the area of ice cover in the Arctic in September 2008 (4.52 mln. km2), in spite of all forecasts, rose by 390 thousand km2 above that of a year ago (when it was 4.13 mln. km2) and in the subsequent four months it grew substantially further.”

Years Of Solar Inactivity

Here – Solar Terrestrial Activity Report of 08/04/2009 – is the last 30 days, at least; but this minimum (some call it the Al Gore minimum) is extending into years of duration.

NOAA admits no spots in last 30 days; Planetary A Index is on the floor. Very weak solar activity is now approaching two years duration. Cycle 24 is not.

In history, when the Sun goes quiet, the Earth gets cold. Beware, Al Gore, “The Chilling Stars.”

Solar Activity - Not

Solar Activity - Not

All Systems Go, for Tragic Al Gore Minimum

Anthony Watts has solar magnetic activity in “code blue” territory, as evidenced by the 10.7 cm radio flux flatlining.   The Ap magnetic index continues to fall after a distinct and striking downshift way back in October of 2005.  Cycle 24 spots are not forming; we have now only a series of weak, sputtering cycle 23 spots, widely separated by ominous quiet, long after cycle 24 was to be in full bloom.

Each of these three types of observations (Ap, 10.7 cm radio, cycle length) has infinitely more significance to climate prediction than carbon dioxide content in atmosphere.  Yet we fixate on the carbon dioxide, and the small part of it which is generated by man.

While not related to carbon dioxide at all, the amplitude of sunspot cycles (in sunspot count) is related closely to the Ap minimum observed at the start of the cycle:

Ap Index is now 2

Ap Index is now 2

Similarly, the sheer length of cycle 23, is related to the amplitude of the next cycle, as are the Aa index, and the 10.7 cm radio flux. All are in agreement in predicting a prolonged period of solar inactivity.

Extended sunspot-free periods are historically associated with wickedly, fatally, cold climate conditions, lasting decades. Food which today is abundant will become scarce, expensive, and its variety will drastically diminish. This is from real history, to be ignored (or revised) at significant peril.

There is no good news from this information. If we started in earnest today, increasing energy supplies and planning for short season crops, we might have a chance to save lives and reduce human suffering.

Al Gore has a much different idea. You should ignore the apparently conclusive evidence from the sun (that a sunspot minimum and little ice age are unfolding), and instead start pumping carbon dioxide down abandoned mine shafts. You should completely abandon development of realistically available energy resources (see Coal-fired power stations are death factories. Close them, by misanthrope James Hansen). Al Gore and his disciples in the church of global warming have made it all but impossible for humans to adapt to reality. The fate of any species which cannot adapt is bleak. Owing to the assiduous efforts of Al Gore and his deluded, collectivist church, humans are not presently disposed to adapt to the Al Gore Minimum or any climatic event except the impossible event: global warming caused by anthropogenic carbon dioxide.

All systems are a strong “go” for the next little ice age; the Al Gore Minimum. At this point, it looks more like a full-blown Maunder event than the less devastating Dalton Minimum.

The Al Gore Minimum will be the most significant, if not the most tragic, event in human history, it now seems likely. Good luck, Al Gore, in revising this when it is history.

Hope your Mum has an extra $30K laying around when Al Gore shows up at her door. If that’s her last cash, Al Gore won’t mind. He is saving the planet from its only scourge; which Gore considers to be humanity.

Goodbye, Dorothy Hacking.

Surprise: Medieval Warm Period DID Exist

ROFLMAO. History did happen. A real scientist had to figure it out, with his high-tech modelling rig:

Also in September, American Craig Loehle, a scientist who conducts computer modelling on global climate change, confirmed his earlier findings that the so-called Medieval Warm Period (MWP) of about 1,000 years ago did in fact exist and was even warmer than 20th-century temperatures.

Great story by Lorne Gunter here: Thirty years of warmer temperatures go poof

30 Years of Global Warming Models Vastly in Error

30 Years of Global Warming Models Vastly in Error

and there’s this:

Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University, says, “It’s practically a slam dunk that we are in for about 30 years of global cooling,”

And speaking of global warming, now would be a GREAT time for you to give up coal-fired power plants, nuclear energy, burning natural gas, and of course good ol’ gasoline and oil. Chairman Obama says it’s now urgent, and there can be no more debate. It’s not voluntary. You won’t be cold for long. A reordering of human economies and societies is necessary.

Al Gore Minimum Ending, or Just Begun?

If the Al Gore solar minimum is indeed ending, as suggested in some quarters (“I think the solar minimum is behind us”) I will propose we use the disgusting moniker for the next minimum, which should be a lot worse.

But not just yet . . . this one may be bad enough. It’s like a giant light switch was turned off, or maybe a fuse blew, in October of 2005. Even though carbon dioxide goes up, climate gets colder. Maybe climate is more connected with the Sun!
